The issue of abortion is definitely a hot topic. In fact, when I was asked to be a part of this blog tour, I didn't hesitate to read May Cause Love, because I will pretty much read anything. But, I did contemplate for a few minutes what reviewing the book would look like on my blog.
This is a book that I hope people read and appreciate because it gives voice to an experience that many women have had (Underwood states that one out of three women has had an abortion).
Underwood receives an email from a woman who had an abortion and is finding it hard to deal with. She emails her back and this begins May Cause Love.
Underwood explains how she found herself nineteen, pregnant and unable to have an infant that would forever change her life. Although this decision was made because it seemed like the best of a bunch of bad choices, Kassi still feels a wide range of emotions after the abortion is over.
Although her choice is not the right one for everyone, and it certainly is in opposition to a variety of religions, her book is the only one I've ever seen that chronicles what this experience is like. For those women who have experienced abortion, this book is an amazing resource where they can find someone who went through something they have also experienced and feel a connection to Kassi.
And they can see that she survived.
Kassi spent years dealing with the effects of her decision, looking in a variety of places for some peace and closure.
Reading this account of what one woman's journey after having an abortion was like is something that will resonate with many readers.
May Cause Love is not meant to present a position as pro or anti abortion. It is meant as a way to reach other women who are looking for a connection after making a devastating choice.
